LATEST: MADONNA and new husband GUY RITCHIE are teaming up to make a bio-pic - about rockers DEF LEPPARD.
The British band's frontman JOE ELLIOTT has confirmed the couple's company MADGUY PRODUCTIONS will be making a movie about the band's career starting in the late seventies until 1988.
Singer Joe says, "Madonna and Guy are just the figureheads for this production company that makes little independent films, though I'm sure she knows she's putting the money up for us." He adds, "I doubt she went into the production office singing INTO THE GROOVE and said, 'I want to make a movie about DEF LEPPARD!'"
Casting for the film will begin in Los Angeles and Joe hopes some big names such as BRAD PITT or SEAN BEAN will be signed for the movie. (ES/WNWCNM/CPT)
